Having lived in Richmond Town for more than 35 years, we were familiar with the area. One weekend in 1999, we fell across the property located at 2 Clapham street, originally built in 1915... An old English bungalow, run down by time.Time had stood still, and nothing seemed to have been touched since the last occupants had left. The missing roof or the trees growing through the walls did not deter us from falling in love with the Cottage.
Over a few years, we restored the building ourselves with great passion and opened our doors to visitors from all over the world. Modifications were made, but we did our best to keep the charm of the place alive... The trees that we found on site still stand, and provide us with wonderful avocados every year.
Today, we run Casa Cottage, a resplendent hotel in Bangalore with a team of dedicated people, with most of them having worked with us for more than 10 years... We speak numerous Indian and International languages and run Casa Cottage with great pride.
I am Benjamine Oberoi and am French. My husband and I treat our work very personally and take pleasure in attending to small details. Our Indian & International guests in our Hotel are treated with personal care. Many languages are spoken around us and Europeans guests feel at home with us as both of us speak several languages. Interaction and “Bonhomie” amongst our guests are very much a feature of our bed and breakfast in Bangalore.We like to travel and meet people from different parts of the world.
I am also an international consultant for local and International NGO’s in the field of development. I have been working on different projects: education and schools, skill training, watershed management and land reclamation, flood and cyclone emergency program, housing, rural women development, microcredit and microenterprise etc. We invite you to visit the Website of the one of the organization: SEVAI and the French organization Objectif- France-Inde OFI
